Majestic 12 –

This book is good for people who struggle with algebra because it turns everything into simple bite sized concepts and it has more information than what your teacher teaches you through a whole school year.

I wish we would’ve had this one. My son was taking algebra! We’ve been using it for review over the summer.

I didn’t read the write up and this book is aimed at kids. Not much use to myself, but a nice, well written book for children, or those who are starting to learn computer science.

Don’t feel ashamed to order this if you are an adult just starting out. These types of book are ideal when getting started.

Best as either a supplement to a textbook or for adult review. As the title says it is a “Study Guide;” it does not contain the nuts and bolts to properly get a handle on algebra. It’s weak in background information however, there are many older, reliable resources many of which are out of copyright and free to access. If you are a student going through algebra for the first time, this will get the job done, but you may struggle later on, even if you get the companion workbook. (FYI the workbook does not cover the pre-algebra sections; it begins with Unit 4 Exponents.) If you are self-learning or homeschooling, you will need another more verbose book besides this one. This book does not contain the in depth explanations and proofs. It also sometimes “skips” steps rather than following the rules. You could learn some habits that will make continued learning more of a challenge than it needs to be. If you are a student that struggled with algebra 1 in school, then working through this book over the summer will help you nail things down before you deal with algebra 2 next year. Difficulty in math at this stage is just a lack in understanding the prior fundamentals.

Besides the “mistakes” in the progression of steps in the math, let’s remember there is often more than one way to get to the answer. There simply isn’t room in the average book to spell out all the ways you could work through a problem. That said, I am working through the book right now and I have found errors in the answers for some of the problems. My copy was printed in 2021 and I looked online for a possible errata. I have not found one. I believe page 73, #10 has a typo. Try using 19.2 miles otherwise, your answer will be off by 0.11… Pg 147 numbers 9 and 10 also will have the wrong answers. You should get 125/8 and 27/64. If #10 is a typo you can try -(4/3)^3 (negative is before the parenthesis instead of on the exponent) which feels more like a logical progression. Good Luck.

8th Grade Homeschool Review:

As a parent and homeschool educator, I’ve been using a set of books for 8th-grade homeschooling, and I’d like to share my thoughts. These books have proven to be a valuable resource in our homeschool journey. They provide a solid foundation for various subjects, covering a wide range of topics essential for 8th-grade students.

What I appreciate most about these books is their comprehensive approach. They offer a well-structured curriculum that allows students to delve into subjects such as mathematics, science, literature, and history. The content is clear, and the exercises and activities help reinforce the learning process.

However, it’s worth noting that while these books are fantastic as guides, they might not provide all the answers. As with any educational materials, there may be moments when students need additional support or clarification. In such cases, we’ve found supplemental videos and other educational resources to be incredibly helpful. The combination of these books and supplementary materials has been the key to a well-rounded education.

Subnote: This review is intended to serve as a general overview for all the books I’m currently using for 8th-grade homeschooling. If any of the books stand out, either for their exceptional quality or shortcomings, I will provide a more detailed review for that specific book. It’s all about ensuring that our homeschooling experience is as enriching as possible.

I like this notebook. It explaines Math clearly and useses simple language. It does not go through it using complex terminology textbooks usally use. I advice and recommend this book for those who are interested in going back to review/revise the basics of math and want to refresh their memory and try some simple exercisies to first understand consepts and apply them via solving simple related porblems prior advancing into other fields of math.

I bought this for my granddaughter who was having trouble with algebra this past school year. This is a smallish, fat little book with lots of notes and simplified explanations. After reviewing her “official” algebra text book, (700 pages and five pounds), I could see why she was having trouble. She said that the notes in this book were simplified and easy to understand. I hired a tutor to help her but the granddaughter was all back up to speed within a few weeks.

It’s so important to not get behind in math. If you miss a few steps, it can really affect your future grades.

I just bought this Algebra I workbook and it’s great. Looks wonderful…I glanced at the explanations on how to solve problems. I did not see an issue. They explain topics well.

As for previous reviews mentioning wrong answers, I have not tested that out yet so I will update my review, if any issues arise. However, if they explain how to solve a problem well enough that you can do it on your own, then the answer book should not matter.

Now, if you are not sure or are hesitant on your work as you work through the problems, then, yes, I get it. But the explanations have correct answers so far from me briefly looking them over…

I would love for there to be an Algebra 2 Big Notbook and an Algebra 2 Workbook! Also, a college Algebra notebook and a college Algebra workbook. I would buy them asap!

I can see these math books, as pictured in my review and including the middle school math book too, to be useful for those wanting to practice for the Praxis exams, Accuplacer exams, and even the GED exams.

Plus, there’s a geometry book as well. I bought it too, because, I was not so great at it back in high-school.
